12 oz brown bottle - bottled 12/21/2012

Founders Breakfast Stout filled my snifter with a pitch black body and formed a generous dark bubbly tan head that shrunk to a ring of foam. Can you say coffee?...Fresh roasted coffee dominates the nose. The taste buds are hit with black coffee, dark chocolate and toasted oats. There is a nice mild hop presence that provides a nice balance. The mouth feel is; smooth, thick, and a little chewy. The body is medium-heavy with a lighter carbonation.

For such a full flavor Breakfast Stout goes down easy, not filling, and is very satisfying. Another impressive Founders brew!

I drank this beer right out of the bottle due to location...it had been aged for a year.

smell was strong of chocolate and coffee

taste was AMAZING a bomb of sweet malty chocolate and slight bitters of coffee slight hints of vanilla

mouth feel was thick, heavy and creamy with little to no carbonation, which is my ideal beer feel.

overall this is defiantly in my top 3 beers, I will purchase every chance I get.
